Nice small lighthouse. Still in use. Has details of the history and building it around it. Views are spectacular towards the sea and inlands.

We were attracted by the romanticism of staying in a hotel with a lighthouse on the end of a peninsular. We were certainly not disappointed. First the accommodation; the rooms we stayed in were in what had been the station school a white washed building near the lighthouse itself. The bedrooms were located around a lounge whose walls are lined... More

but don't go here for the lighthouse. The elephant seals are less than 100 meters away. They can be viewed from the platform, but you need assistance from an official guide to go down the steps to get close to them.
